Dun dun dun ...

As you can see, there have been a lot changes happening with this blog. This is because it used to be a photography blog. Well, sorry to say that that got a little boring after a while, and I wanted to be able to write too. So then I changed it to both. Then I figured "Why not make two? One for me, one for photos?"

So, I did.

go -->
HERE<-- to visit.

That blog is solely for the purpose of my photos, as I plan to be a photography when I'm older. AND I didn't want to let all my blogger friends down by NOT posting photos like I had said I would.

But I got that all fixed

So anyway. Check it out if you want to =)

I Just Can't Find It

I can't find it! My writing style, I mean.

It's quiet irksome, actually.

Because I don't want to be a copy cat, but I don't know what 'me' is. I feel that all my writing is just 'blah' compared to what other people are writing. I don't want to be 'blah.' No one likes blah, not even me.

So I don't know what to do. Humph.

It's so confusing, trying to find your writing style. Maybe I shouldn't have to think about it? Maybe I should just write like I talk (with good grammar and no 'likes') and then it'll be more 'me.'

I don't know what to write. So I guess I'll write what I feel like writing when I feel like writing it. Hope that's ok.

Hugs and kisses and bed time stories

Don't you just love little kids? I mean, how can you not?

They say the silliest things at the silliest times, and they don't even realize how silly they are.

Plus they like hugs. What could be better?

Hugs and kisses and bed time stories.

I love little kids. They make me smile. =) Like that. Or sometimes like =D that. And sometimes they make me go crazy like =Z that.

most the time they make me smile with their silly words.

Someday I'll have my own kids. And they'll be
cute and sweet and charming. Hopefully...

Mother always tell us (Clay, Beth and I) that she hopes we all have three kids like William (who, I can tell you, gets quiet annoying and loud and only sometimes sweet). (But when he is sweet you can't help but smile and wish you could give him a kitten.)

She (Mother) also says that our kids will go to her house (which would be Gramma's house...that sounds funny) and then feed them candy and send them home. Thanks Mom.

But, I still love kids. With their sweet little smiles and ingenious ideas and silly drawings and big imaginations. What's not to love?

The tantrums, and whining, and crying, and complaining, and the not listening. But really... it all evens itself out.

They're just so cute!!

(yes, this is William. yes, I took those photos)

(And as I type this little William is trying to get the cat, Penny, to stay on the blankie [to use his exact words] that he put in the middle of the living room floor for her bed...she isn't liking it...)

Just a little bit about me ...

I dream of mochas
I carry a euchre deck around in my purse
The earth says hello
You are my friend =)

Just One

A poem I found on another blog. Just wanted to share =)

ONE song can spark a moment,
ONE flower can wake the dream.
ONE tree can start a forest,
ONE bird can herald the spring.

ONE smile begins a friendship,
ONE handclasp lifts a soul.
ONE star can guide a ship at sea,
ONE word can frame the goal.

ONE vote can change a nation,
ONE sunbeam lights a room.
ONE candle wipes out darkness,
ONE laugh will conquer gloom.

ONE step must start each journey,
ONE word must start each prayer.
ONE hope will raise our spirits,
ONE touch can show you care.

ONE voice can speak with wisdom,
ONE heart can know what's true.
ONE life can make the difference,
You see, it's up to YOU!

Have you ever wished what we read in books could be real?

I'm talking about fiction. Epic adventures, super powers, heros, all that jazz. Have you ever wished it was real? Ever gaze off into the distance and wish YOU were the main character of some epic real life adventure?

I have.

Wouldn't it be amazing though? If all the amazing things we write were real? Obviously normal life isn't exciting enough to make a good story, so we add things to it, change it, and mix it up a little. Why can't normal life be that way too?


I guess it's because if it were like that, what would we write about? 'Normal' life? That might get kind of boring.

So, maybe, we should leave fiction to the books? Sound good?

I think so. *wink wink*

Is this working?

I don't know if my new blog idea is working; what do you think?

I want to write something meaningful, something you'll all love; something to get you thinking. I just don't know what to write though, that you'll all love.

I don't even know if I'm capable of writing such a thing. I read them all the time - heart warming stories; ones that make you cry.

And I try to write like that, but I just can't seem to get the words right - this frustrates me.

Maybe it's because I don't know what to write about.

I want to be one of those bloggers that write things people want to read. Maybe pictures aren't enough?

I'm not sure ...

I'm not very good at still blogging thing am I? I'm really sorry. I have no pictures (the weather as been horrible!) and I'm two weeks late! My life as been soooooo busy lately (and the weather crappy) that I can't find time to get photos in!

So I'm really sorry for letting you all down and being that blog that doesn't post when they say they will. =(

Corina commented saying that I should take an up close picture of a bug...any bug.'s too cold here in MI for there to BE any bugs, so that one's out.

The Dancing Pen commented saying I should take a picture of my whole family - including me. Well, I highly doubt I (or any one else in my family for that matter) has time to get a nice picture.

Sorry I have failed you all misserably.

=( Please don't hate me.
